UAE eGovernment forum proving to be a popular eParticipation channel

Dubai: The UAE eGovernment forum is becoming a popular eParticipation channel for the citizens and residents of the UAE as even for prospective tourists and investors.

The participants ask questions, raise issues and share views on a host of subjects such as visa matters, environment conservation and culture preservation.

The forum is one of the several channels of eParticipation adopted by the UAE government and has been part of the revamped UAE federal portal since its launch in May 2012.

Sharing his thoughts on eParticipation, Salem Khamis Al Shair Al Suwaidi, Deputy Director General, Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) – Information and eGovernment Sector said, “eParticipation is an important tool of communication between the government and the public and aids in enhancing transparency, efficiency and accountability of the government. I appreciate the involvement shown by our participants who utilise these channels to share their views and concerns and would encourage everyone to join in.” The UAE’s lead in the field of eParticipation was acknowledged in the United Nations E-Government Survey 2012, which ranked the UAE at 6th position globally on the eParticipation index.

People can participate in the UAE government forum by adding questions and replying to questions that others have posted. Sharing name and email id is optional and no sign-in is required to take part in the forum. You are welcome to participate in the UAE eGovernment forum.
